Case me a Christmas Card

Hello my crafty friends, I’am so happy to be part of my friends Michelle Lupton Case me a Christmas Card Challenge. 

It was all about choosing one of her cards and case it… that means like copy it but doing it in your way. 

And that’s what I did … on the first picture you will see Michelles card and then I show you what I created. Hope you guys like it. 

First I started by cutting a piece of vellum down to an A2 card base. Its important to take care and keep the vellum away from any glue or dirt on your working space 🙂 

I wanted to use almost the same colors as Michelle did, but without using any ink. Therefor I did cut 3 strips from some color cardstock. I used a piece of copy paper to glue the strips down using some Gina K connect glue. 

The sentiment I used is from the Simon Says Stamp stamp set „CZ Design Clear Stamps LET’S MAKE A TAG Holly Jolly“ I did heat emboss the Merry using some WOW! Embossing Metallic Gold Rich powder  as well as the little christmas strip.

For the flower background I have used a die from Sizzix called „Blossom Frame“ I did die cut the frame from some white cardstock and then just cut it in two pieces, as the die is very big and I just needed some of the flowers showing of on both sides. 

So after I had everything embossed and cut it was time to glue everything down onto my vellum card base. I also used some Gina K Connect Glue for this. I also did die cut everything again and adhere it just on the back, that way you don’t see any glue through the vellum. 

Last but not least I added some white dots from The Stamp Market just to give it a nice clean look.

And that’s it my friends, now just jump over to Michelle’s blog and check out which card she made.

I want to thank Michelle again for having me as her guest and you can also check out her Instagram Profil and see all the wonderful cards she creates.

I wish all of you a wonderful week and stay safe and healthy.

    Hola, Daniel! Feliz Navidad! ⛄ Okay, your card (and Michelle ’s) are gorgeous. Plus, I absolutely love vellum. So, is this like heavy duty vellum that you used? Is that a dumb question? And why does it look shiny in the photo? My vellum doesn’t behave like yours. haha haha Sorry for so many questions, but I gotta know so I can try it.
    Feliz Navidad, Daniel. Que la pases bien en compania de tus seres queridos. Yo soy de herencia mexicana pero sabemos que los Delgado son originalmente de Las Islas Canarias Espanolas.

      Hola Marisela, muchísimas gracias por tu comentario tan lindo. Me alegra mucho que te guste mi tarjeta. He usado velum normal, aguanta bastante bien. Puede ser que brille un poco por la luz .. porque no le he puesto nada de brillantina o asi. Te dese a ti a tu familia también Feliz Navidad y prospero Ano Nuevo.
